Hope and Despair, trumpeter Josh Evans’s sophomore effort, was released on September 18. It is a 12-track album of all original and personal material, except for “Nji Lule”, a traditional Albanian folksong that Evans has arranged. Indie Shuffle has premiered the album’s “Bad Dream”, the third track, along with a review of the track as ‘full and lush’. On our end, “Bad Dream” is an extremely enjoyable example of phenomenal artistry that features Evans’s skill with the trumpet; the sort of thing that we point to as incredibly well composed and executed jazz. Listen to it for yourself below. Don’t forget to purchase a ticket or tickets for the album release concert at Smalls on September 22nd.
